"Field of Lost Shoes" Novelization to the epic feature film
This is the All New novelization companion to the remarkable, epic motion picture "Field of Lost Shoes." At the Battle of New Market, seven VMI friends went into battle together, only four returned. Based on the true story of friendship, courage, and sacrifice. After Abraham Lincoln appoints Ulysses S. Grant as General in Chief of Union Forces, Grant targets Virginia’s pristine Shenandoah Valley, breadbasket of the South. The superintendent of the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) in Lexington volunteers to send the Corps of Cadets to help protect the valley. Two hundred seventy-four Cadets march north toward the strategic valley chokepoint at New Market. When Union forces blow a gaping hole in the Southern line, the students are ordered forward. On a rainsoaked field, with mud so thick it pulls the shoes right off their feet, the boys answer the grim call to arms. This is their story.
